Thoughts on my Characters

StolenMadWolf

I've recently beening messing around with a fresh character design. They are not really a sona in the same sense as my actual fursona of Kili, but I wanted to come up with something that would allow me to explore my creativty at bit more and a few ideas I could never really do with my main sonas. Especially as the design became more of a ringer for me.

So, meet a new character of mine: Lyris Heartfire.


Lyris by Zeitzbach

Lyris also doubles as a potential quote-on-quote species I've been wanting to check out a bit called an Ethersprite. Their fur pattern was inspired by a gift and some inspiration came from a few video games I've check out recently.

Basic Details
Name: Lyris Heartfire
Species: Ethersprite
Age: 1, but physically and mentally they on par with 18-23 year old.
Gender: Genderless and Non-Binary, but they typically identify as male.
Build: 4'5'' tall, average build but very light. Only about 50kg at most.

Notable Features:
  • As an Ethersprite, he may seem like a little canine but he's actually an energy being underneath that fur, which is essentialy conjouried up into his own image. His energy seeps through a scar and one eye and he can temporarily blow the fur away to reveal a blue form of energy.
  • He possesses a white/blue 'scarf' that extends out from his neck fur, which helps him channel his own energy based abilities. This scarf varies from each different Ethersprite. In Lyris' case, he can form wings from them.
  • Although not shown, he has a bushy tail which can split into multiple tails at once.
  • He's a digitgrade, and walks bipedally although he can move on four limbs.
  • A few smaller features includes a few scars from where he was injured shortly after his 'birth'. He has injury caused heterochromia, with a natural eye colour being orange, and his healed eye being blue. He has an X-shaped scar around this eye and one of his ears is chipped.
Personality
He's a little ball of fluff, always out to have some fun whilst generally being an allround nice guy to whoever he meets. Underneath all that 'fur' though, and he's actually quite traumatised. He is also very creative, and utter enjoys and appreciates other's own creative pursuits. He tends to go wandering around with a big set of headphons listening to music 50% of the time.

So, thoughts on Lyris?

This guy is awesome!

Edit: I love furs with Supernatural elements to them, especially ones that are creative and haven't been done before. The concept you have with him is something I've genuinely never heard of, and I'm really excited to see more art and stories of him.

Thank you! I hoping to get some more stuff to do with Lyris up at some point.

Lyris is probably the closest I'm going to get to pure supernatural with the characters I've got on hand. Science fantasy perhaps, but there is a bit of everything overall including the supernatural!

I absolutely love the design! Very well done!!!

I can tell Lyris has a lot of character potential.

Very nice design owo

I like his look a lot, especially the neat art style

Thank you! I've kinda got smitten on the basic design myself. Though I have to thank the artist for getting the piece put together, as much actual artistic skills suck!

Come to think of it, I better put up some extra characters up as well.

Here's my main fursona and OC, Kili Kingsley.


Kili by Huie

Kili has varied quite a bit over the years, starting of as a general brown wolf (that happened to look like a fox) until eventully he evolved into his modern day form thanks to those tattoos. Originally an SL design, I tweaked them, built up some lore and gave him some redesigned outfits. All in all, I'm really happy with that I have come up with! I try to keep him true to myself as he is afterall both a reflection of me as well as his own original character.

Basic Details:
Name: Kili Kinglsey
Species: Anthrowolf (even if he looks like a fox)
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Build: Average Build, 6'2''-6'5''. Weighs 80kg.

Notable Features:
  • Kili has black fur with a white tip on his tail, blue eyes and black hair with blue highlights. But he does also have blue tattoos that glow (more details on that in just a second...) and he is also a digitgrade.
  • He also has nanoites which allows him to shape energy to his own whims, utalising a wide range of abilities such as forming energy orbs, shields, gauntlets and even wings alongside more passive benefits. There is a full list of such abilities on hand but that will take a ridculous amount of time. His tattoos will glow when Kili is under strain or when he is using the nanoites, including his eyes. He has five of them. Two on his chest, one on each arm and one big one on his back.
  • He will alternate clothing naturally, but he has pretty much appeared exclusively in his nanoweave gear, which is the blue vest and clothes. Again, redesigned the vest after coming across some inspiration to make my own version.
Personality:
Kili is a nice friendly guy who is even a little bit shy, but he does possess a fierce temper although he will regret it. He is very quiet under most circumstances, but get him to open up and he will be more than happy to do what he can to be a decent friend. He's also very creative and loves to take part in fighting/outdoor/online activities. He does have some internal turmoil but he tries to not let that stop him and just wants to do what he can to make a difference.

Woah! He looks really cool! Reminds me a lot of a siren from the Borderlands series :D

I'm still interested to hear people's thoughts on Kili and Lyris above! However, I also have another character on hand.

Well, I don't have many details other than a basic name and image, Keyla. Long story short after some... weird dreams I decided to come up with a dragon character and since then, I've fitting her into a new setting of mine. Now I use Second Life to help build up a character so I can physically or rather, virtually see them. Since Keyla popped up, she ended up getting quite a bit of attention, more so than other characters I have done in the past.


To throw some basic details:

Name: Kayla
Species: R-------- (Aka Anthrodragon/reptile)
Age: 27
Gender: Female
Build: 6ft, slim.

Features:
Black and blue skin/scales, yellow/amber eyes. Officially doesn't have wings even if she sports them here! Wears feminine clothing but will mix in some mascaline clothing for practicalities sake. In short, yeah, that is a dress she is wearing over trousers.

Personality:
...not much, as of yet. Other than being a bit more feminine than other characters I have done, including other females. However she is very strong willed and doesn't like being pushed around. A little bit of a troublemaker in practice. Whilst she does like playing up her feminine side, she is immediately uncomfortable with those who... well... take it further if you know what I mean.

Still boggles me somewhat how she got alot of attention, what are your thoughts on Keyla? Alongside Kili and Lyris above?

Go, Atropos.
There's... not that much to go on about for me, since lore's lacking, and I'm a sucker for reading. But, in spite of that, the visual design is nice to stare at, especially Kayla ^^ (hel yeah, dragon)

Well, I've been working on some more art of my own, and figured I might as well get a full refsheet sorted out for one of my characters. Specifically, Lyris Heartfire is back! It was originally just going to be some practice art, but the way I ended up laying it out made sense on the reference sheet front. I'm also planning on using Lyris more in things like commissions to further explore some ideas I couldn't do with other characters.

Anyway, here is the sheet and a fresh update on his character details!




Just as an update on his appearence, I decided to opt for giving Lyris a more androgynous, supernatural appearence by slimming them down, narrowing their feet and making their hands bigger and merged into their wrists. As well as amplifying some cuteness. More detail on the art itself is on the Fur Affinity page.

Now, back to those basics:

Lyris also doubles as a potential quote-on-quote species I've been wanting to check out a bit called an Ethersprite. Their fur pattern was inspired by a gift and some inspiration came from a few video games I've check out recently.

Basic Details
Name: Lyris Heartfire
Species: Ethersprite
Birthdate: 20/6
Age: Biologically 1, but physically and mentally they on par with 18-24 year old.
Gender: Sexless and Non-Binary, but are content with being referred to as male.
Orientation: Bisexual
Build: 4'5'' tall, slim build but very light. 50kg.
Star sign: Western - Gemini/Eastern - Fire Rat

Appearance
Hair and fur: Naturally coloured brown and white.
Markings: They have a few golden-orange marking's across their fur. Primarily around their arms and head. They also have some golden tattoos and blue scars.
Eye color: Naturally gold-orange, but has heterochormia which makes one eye blue.
Other features: Their has a pair of white/blue 'scarves' that run down their back, emerging from a thick, white section of fur that covers their chest, upper back and shoulders.
Clothing/Personal Style: Up in the air! They might wear a mix in clothing, though they will opt for something androgynous.

Skills

They are capable of combat and can fly. However, their real talent is in their creativty. Whilst they are still working on their abilities, they deeply enjoy writing and art. They are incredibly creative and inventive with the circumstances.
Weaknesses
Physically, they are fragile, and losing the scarve's can cause great harm. Emotionally, they are naive and can be very emotional at the wrong times.

Notable Extra Infomation
  • As an Ethersprite, they may seem like a little canine but they're actually an energy being underneath that fur, which is essentialy conjouried up into their own image. Their energy seeps through a scar and one eye and he can temporarily blow the fur away to reveal a blue form of energy.
  • He possesses a white/blue 'scarf' that extends out from his neck fur, which helps him channel his own energy based abilities. This scarf varies from each different Ethersprite. In Lyris' case, they can form wings from them. Furthermore, other Ethersprites can sport other scraf designs, capes and ponytails.
  • He has a bushy tail which can split into multiple tails at once.
  • He's a digitgrade, and walks bipedally.
  • A few smaller features includes a few scars from where they were injured shortly after their 'birth'. Those injuries are also the cause of their heterochromia, with a natural eye colour being orange, and his healed eye being blue. He has an X-shaped scar around this eye and one of his ears is chipped, both show his natural energy underneath.
  • They also has the ability to shift into other forms, however, these are not shown here specifically. Alongside his regular form there is an featureless, blue energy form and an armoured, bigger form.
  • Lyris also in some appearences has a pair of golden tattoos on some of his limbs. On his left wrist, he has the Chinese Characters for Fire Rat visible, whilst on his right leg, he has the combined symbols for the classical element of Air, the Zodiac of Gemini and the Astronomical Symbol for Mercury. This is less of a lore thing and more just a little hilarious coincidence that some of their traits match up with the Zodiacs that match me. I might actually include something about the Zodiac's into Ethersprite lore, just for fun if anything else since I don't believe in astrology. Like I said, always makes a good laugh.
Personality
He's a little ball of fluff, always out to have some fun whilst generally being an allround nice guy to whoever he meets. Underneath all that 'fur' though, and he's actually quite traumatised. He is also very creative, and utter enjoys and appreciates other's own creative pursuits. He tends to go wandering around with a big set of headphons listening to music 50% of the time.

Lyris is a little ball of fluff, always out to have some fun. They are an all round nice person to whoever they meet, and are deeply compassionate, trying their best to look after people who need help and offer a shoulder for them to lean on. Underneath all that fur though, they are actually quite traumatised due to events that have occured in the past which means they can be emotionally compromised if the right buttons are pressed. However, they try not to put their issues onto anyone else.

They are very creative, and utterly enjoys exploring ideas and appreciates others' own creative pursuits along side their own. They tend to go wondering around with a big set of headphones, as they very much love music. Lyris is also very expressive, and is willing to try new things and approaches, such as opting for androgynous clothing or trying a different style of creativity.

******

So with that in mind, let me know what else you thing on Lyris! Like I said, I'm hoping to do some more with them down the line to explore a few things.
